‘Carpmaels is a tremendous firm with a sophisticated patent practice. I use them for all my patent work in prosecution and oppositions. They have a very deep bench of skilled partners who work together collaboratively and seamlessly. I have confidence in whoever I am working with.’
‘Carpmaels provides a sense of intimacy and knowledge of our company’s patent portfolio and our corporate objectives. They bring the right level of effort and competency to every issue, whether prosecution, opposition, or litigation, and provide strategic guidance on the portfolio and various actions that make clear what path to take and more often than not results in the desired outcome.’
‘C&R is unusual in having integrated teams of solicitors and patent attorneys, which enables them to provide a highly technically qualified team with a view of patent prosecution as well as litigation.’
‘Every member of the Carpmaels team I have worked with is intelligent, engaged, and knowledgeable in the specific topics of importance to the project. They always make themselves available, almost regardless of the time of day, and each team member provides me with a sense of responsibility and diligence in providing appropriate guidance and answers to questions asked, or to pull in Carpmaels team members (or outside resources) to make sure I get the information I need.’
‘Working with the team at Carpmaels is amazing. They all seem to just flow with one another. Work doesn’t feel handed-off but shared. All, of course, have superb knowledge of their domain.’
‘Great team, very enthusiastic and have a strong interest in our business succeeding.’
‘The team is super smart and creative. They are truly thought partners. When they bring a solution forward, they also demonstrate why they think that is the best path. It is obvious that they have debated the idea internally among the team and I feel confident with each step we take in the EPO and other proceedings and decisions being made.’
